Speaker Bio

Nizenande Machi is Relationship Systems Strategist. She creates human-centered frameworks for African development, which when coupled with her knack for relating with people at various levels, has enabled her to advance her Transformative Leadership in Africa agenda.


As someone who believes she has a pivotal role to play in reshaping Africa and positioning it on the global scale in matters concerning civic leadership, economic regeneration and entrepreneurship development, her professional contributions are concerned with defining the Africa we ought to build for future generations to inherit.


At a social, economic, and political level, she gives her time and energy towards clarifying the continent’s development path and working towards it.




Nizenande has a Bachelor of Commerce degree in Management Studies with Finance from the University of Cape Town, and a Fundamentals to Organisational & Relationship Systems Coaching Certificate through CRR Global. She also holds a Certificate on Thought Leadership for Africa’s Renewal from the Thabo Mbeki African Leadership Institute at UNISA and is a Certified Strengths finder Coach through Gallup International.


“I believe that all life is God’s.


Ours is to ultimately glorify Him  in  it  by influencing people to advance the Kingdom-culture of freedom on earth. My primary aim in life is to be free, and to lead others to their own freedom. Freedom of choice, freedom of movement, thought, speech and prosperity. Free to grow in spirit, be strengthened in joy and to labour in love.


As Nizenande Machi, I have been called to individuals, communities, and nations; to help them understand the principles of true freedom, break the barriers that stop them from living in it, and pursue success in the places where they live, play and lead.”


African Development Highlights


Nizenande Machi has been published as a featured author alongside former South African Minister of Finance, Trevor Manuel, and former Public Protector, Thuli Madonsela in a book titled: ‘Inspired: Remarkable South Africans share their stories’. In 2017 Nizenande moderated a panel with African Former Heads of State on the Fourth Industrial Revolution and the African Youth Demographic Bulge.


As part of her active citizenry, she serves as a Member of the Eminent Persons’ Group (EPG) for Transformation in Sport under the Minister of Sport. And as an advocate for the empowerment of women, Nizenande is a fellow on the Zanele Mbeki Fellowship, a programme designed to cultivate Feminist Leadership for Africa.


This led her to attending the annual UN Commission on the Status of Women as part of the South Africa Advisory Panel in 2019. Nizenande spoke at TEDx Lyttelton Women in March 2022 around the event theme: “What’s Next?”


Through coaching and facilitation, Nizenande discovered her talent for understanding how to influence individuals and teams to create and align on one vision so that they can deliver on it. Her strategic ability to enable individuals to operate beyond emotional and social intelligence, and focus on the relationship systems that exists, has made her successful at creating strategies for local, Pan African, and global institutions that encompass the facets, interdependencies and dichotomies that affect the strategic mandate at hand. This work has led her to establishing two organisations: Karani Group and Luncha Lunako.
